I made the drive down to Monroe today just for breakfast at the Pot Luck Cafe. I had the day off, and the time to go to one of my favorite breakfast stops in Georgia. Small place that has excellent food, nice attentive staff, and the prices can't be beat. Just love to get here when I can.

Little <a href=Italy Peppinos Pizzeria">

Reviewed By Rick H - Monroe, Georgia, United States

Little Italy has been my go to place for awhile now. This past week, I took my 2 year granddaughter and she loved her slice of pizza. She was treated very well by the cashier/server who was vert friendly. I just don't understand why people keep going to the poorly run competition across the street.

We got "The works" New York pizza..HUGE!!..the pizza was delicious ..also had the garlic knots and chicken wings..the garlic knots were actually just balls of fried dough tossed in garlic butter and topped with parmesan cheese...a lil greasy for my taste but it was ok...the wings were over cooked, so they were kind of dried out but the sauce was decent..wish they would have put more sauce to make it not seem so dry but it to was ok..but they were meaty, so that kind of made up for it...all in all, I'd just go back for the pizza... :-)

Great restaurant. Always consistent, great knowledgeable servers. The food is typical Mexican fare. Nice draft beer selection, along with the typical bottled selections.

This is by far the best service I've ever gotten at a Chick-Fil-A and that's saying something because they're all pretty good! They are fast even when they're packed. Everyone is really friendly. The dining area is clean.

Oriental Garden 3 Chinese Restaurant

Reviewed By dwebb66 - Peterborough, United Kingdom

My wife and I visit here regularly and we love the place! The staff are always welcoming and the food is great.

Portion sizes are huge and food is served piping hot and freshly cooked.

The only thing to add would be a liquor license. It would be great to wash food down with a beer or glass of wine.

Heartily recommended!

Campton Restaurant

Reviewed By OverSixtyGeorgia - Georgia

Nothing fancy here......just a plain old country style restaurant. Lots of fried items here.
Fried shrimp were excellent but the fried oysters were way overdone and not very tasty. The slaw and hush puppies were very good. I have been told that their steaks are excellent-----perhaps I will try one if I go to Campton's again.

Scoops Monroe

Reviewed By Fisherman100 - Bostwick, Ga

Scoops is a new ice cream store in Monroe and is very popular. The ice cream is very good and the staff is friendly and helpful. The ice cream area is in the back of the store so you walk past a lot of candy displays and stuffed animals before you get to the ice cream. Very challenging if you have children or grandchildren with you! They have hot pink rocking chairs in the front of the store, booths inside and an outdoor seating area. Such a nice addition to the downtown Monroe area.
